Im Jordan, if you don't know me nice to meet you :-) If you know me then it is no secret to you that I am obsessed with watching the runway and catching up on the latest trends. At VAE Hair we are always looking to the catwalk for fresh ideas to bring into the salon for our clients and for inspiration for our session work. So I thought for our first post I would put together a few of my standout hair looks from the AW 16 catwalks. If you are looking for some inspiration for this season look no further. I hope you enjoy :-)
NB: This is going to hopefully be the first of many posts like this so please any feedback or ideas on things you would like to hear about I am very open to suggestions (please be nice). There is a comments box at the bottom of this post :-)
BEJEWELLED DREAMS Alexander Mcqueen
The McQueen woman this season was a creature of the night who is able to drift between the dream world and reality. I eagerly await the Alexander Mcqueen show every year, the main reason being the collections always create such an emotive story and this years London show did not disappoint. Beautiful peal and jewel encrusted details adorned the hair in abundance.
These were combined with heavy chains and soft textured up-dos to give the look a contemporary edge.
HAIR TEXTURES - SLICK VS SOFT (left to right) Prada, Mary Katrantzou, Marc Jacobs
Shiny slick hair was a feature of many of this Autumn Winter's catwalk shows. This gloss trend paired perfectly with a few of the other recurrent trends on the catwalk; Prada teemed there much less wet but still shiny looking style with a deep slightly masculine looking side parting. Mary Katrantzou and Marc Jacobs teamed their wet looks with variations of waves. All looks however seemed to agree that whilst creating a high shine look at the root the ends of the models hair should be left much softer and textured to add a romantic/ethereal feel.
WIGS O'CLOCK - Balmain
I Love the way a wig can drastically transform a models look without the commitment. For AW Balmain opted to transform their models by giving them a wig of the opposite colour to their usual style creating something jaw droping-ly amazing.
WHAT KNOT TO WEAR? - (left to right) Daks, Christian Dior, Bogetta Veneta
Some designers opted for simple bun styles to complement their looks this Autumn Winter. Dior opted for the deep side parting whilst Bogetta Veneta chose the symmetry and strength of a centre parting. Low slung ponytails where twisted up into neat and elegant knots to create simple yet sophisticated looks. I love minimalistic up-dos which leave the neck and shoulders bare - allowing you to see their beautiful silhouette.
If like me you are counting the days until LFW then I hope this has got you even more excited! Hope you enjoyed it readers.
